Christmas Rose Birthday Card Duo

Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.

Christmas Rose Blueberry Bushell Birthday Card

I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.

To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Congrats Lighthouse Card

I’m not a fan of real lighthouses as I’m scared of heights, I can still remember walking up ten steps of Portland Bill, a lighthouse in Dorset UK and being terrified and going all dizzy. I however like the stamps in the Sailing Home stamp set and can appreciate how detailed that lighthouse stamp is and how it makes a great focal point for a card.

Congrats Lighthouse Card - close up

Here I’ve stamped it in Night of Navy and then die cut it so the bottom edge where the sea is can overlap my oval. I love the detail on the rope die which I have used across the middle of the card to seperate the two diffrent patterns of paper from the Come Sail Away DSP.

A greeting stamped on the small banner from the Smooth Sailing dies finishes the card.

Pretty Peacock Gather Together Card

Today’s monochromatic Pretty Peacock card would make the perfect notecard for suggesting a meet-up with friends or just to let them know you care.  I love how all the different embellishments work together to create interest to what is a very simple card.

I wanted to use the wooden leaves on numerous projects but couldn’t quite make them work here I think thye do. The first leaf was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the second was adhered using Mini Glue Glue Dots so it could add some dimension to the card.

A few Pretty Peacock Rhinestone from the Nobel Peacock collection and the card is finished.  A card suitable for all year round and not just harvest time.

Christmastime Rose Card

This is the first card I made with the new Christmastime Is Here Suite of products.  How gorgeous is that rose and its cut from the designer paper with a die so this stunning card came together in minutes.

I love that with the die you can cut the paper or stamp the rose outline and then cut that out so all the beautiful detail is kept and not lost with a fussy cutting mishap.

I’ve added some extra detail to this card by using the corner dies to cut some goild foil. I think they look like corners of an ornate frame and I was tempted to added a gold foil matt under the green layer but though that might be too much.

I added a little greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas. I stampe dit in Golden Glitz Delicata ink and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. To fix it to the card I cut a little slit up near the pine cone so  it could slot it among the foiliage and not detract too much from the goregous rose image.

Merry & Bright Christmas Card

I love fairy lights but I have a weird quirk in which I have coloured lights outside and I have white or blue-toned lights inside, this drives my family mad as they’d have full on coloured ones all over the house. This card is definietly celebrating those outdoor lights in my eyes but I may be persuaded to put this card on my mantlepiece.

It’s really a very simple card with a 8cm x 14.9 cm of Whisper Whisper cardstock stamped with the string of lights stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Each of the bulbs was coloured with Stampin’ Blends marker in the following colours: Poppy Parade, Call Me Clover, Night of Navy and Pineapple Punch.

Merry & Bright Card flat

I added a layer of Poppy Parade measuring 9cm x 14.9cm behind the stamped panel and then adhered it to a card base in Call me Clover measuring 14.9cm x 10.5cm.

For the greeting I stamped the greeting on one of the Layered Circle dies and then matted onto anothe circle of Call Me Clover. I love how the circle of stars stamps really pops off the card.

Merry & Bright Card inside

I must have been feeling very festive when I made this card as I’ve even added some coloured fairy lights to the inside of the card.

Pastel Above the Clouds Card

I’ve had the Above the Clouds bundle in my stash since june but I’ve not inked it up yet. I love the sentiments in this set but I’ve struggled with the balloons, so I’ve taken inspiration from the catalogue and made my own version of the card on page 89 of the Annual Catalogue.

I’ve used the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the Purple Posy frame and the matt for the clouds, which were stamped in Pool Party.

Pastel Above the Clouds flat

The balloons are stamped in Purple Posy and Grapefruit Grove and the greeting is stamped in Highland Heather so it stands out more.

I’ve finished the card off with three sequins from the iridescent assortment. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out so hopefully theis set will see some more ink again soon.

Pine Tree Punch Christmas Tree Card Duo

This pair of cards feature the Pine Tree Punch to build up larger Christmas trees. Each tree is made up of nine punched trees, punched from the Wrapped in Plaid Speciality DSP.

I’ve based one card on Night of Navy and one on Shaded Spruce and given each one a gold foil star punched from the Twinkle Builder Punch.

Pine Tree Punch Christmas Card 2

This is  a quick and simple card which would be easy to mass produce if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make, you can also use any papers you’ve got to make the tree.
